Palma's Federation of Residents' Associations is demanding that the town hall plays more of a role in the soundproofing of homes in areas near to the airport. Of 1,343 homes identified by the airports authority Aena under the plan for soundproofing, 779 have been given this while eleven are currently in the process of implementation. This leaves 410 which have neither requested soundproofing nor the report that is needed prior to installation. This is being attributed to a lack of information. Joan Forteza, the president of the federation, says that Aena is complying with the plan but is doing so very slowly. He stresses the importance of an owner insisting on the undertaking of soundproofing.
